Harrison Ford insists there is only one Indiana Jones — him. And the trailer for the upcoming fifth film in the franchise sort of proves his point. It has an Indy who’s roughly Harrison Ford’s age — namely 80 years old. And then it also includes scenes with a younger Indy, who is played by … Harrison Ford.

The trailer for this fifth Indiana Jones is here, and it reveals the film’s full title: It is called Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny. The trailer doesn’t indicate what the Dial of Destiny actually is, but it features plenty of action, a fair amount of whip cracking, and an appearance by Indy’s old pal Sallah, played by John Rhys-Davies. Take a look:

There’s a new poster for the film as well.
Here is the movie’s official synopsis:
